Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

DC loves covers with Superman's eyes glowing with his heat vision. They probably think it's kewl. I have to admit, I kind of like his suit. I'm guessing they are doing a New 52 version of the "Return of Krypton" storyline that seemed to be teased in Superman #0. I'll give them a chance.

The cardboard "outer cover" of Batman and Batgirl this month is sort of annoying. Haven't read either book yet.

I am so damn sick of that bit.

Really, of all the powers Superman has, I'd most like to see heat vision go. Not only has it become an excuse for the "Faux Image" eyes, but does Superman really need a power where he can basically kill people [if he wanted to] just by looking at them?

I picked up Batman 13, Superboy 13, Batman and Robin 13 this week. Superboy was average, BR was pretty good. But Batman 13,,, wow! that issue was absolutely amazing, riveting, suspenseful. Just an absolute home run.

So Batman #13...Damn! That was awesome. Every panel of that book was awesome. If Death of the Family can keep this momentum going, it could possible go down as one of the greatest Batman stories.

I've not read either of this week's pulls yet. (Though above I did mention the covers for the Bat-books were annoying.)

Paging through them, though, does seem like this is going to be an interesting storyline. I just hope I can follow it decently without having to pull other Bat-family books I don't follow. If not a Trade might be in my future.

Paul Cornell is off Demon Knights at 16, but promises there is news coming about another assignment. I'll pretty much give anything he writes a try at this point.

It's going to be Robert Venditti, and the story will take place thirty years after the current arc. And will involve vampires. I don't know Venditti's work, but I'll likely give it a try.

Scott Snyder and Jim Lee's Superman project is officially announced...

http://www.newsarama.com/comics/scot...man-title.html

I'm excited for this.

Well.....now I'm excited.

Snyder is clearly DC's new golden boy, and with good reason. Lee's artwork is always great. I just hope that this doesn't become another Justice League, with two of the biggest and most respected names putting out a mediocre book. It's good to know that we'll have a Superman title to look forward to reading still, since I really don't see Action being any good once Morrison leaves.

Especially if they have Diggle and Daniel doing some kind of weird Return to Krypton storyline in Action Comics. I really want to give them a chance, but what they have planned seems weird to me.

Also speaking of Morrison wrapping up Action Comics...this is going to be an interesting finale...

Should be really interesting. I've wanted another Superman title, I mean we've got four Batman titles, plus all of the extended-U Batman books. About time for another Superman title!
